With the way that scripter can work, you may not need a "template",
since you can place objects where you want on each page, then do this
repetitively with a loop.

I haven't had a problem with this in 1.2 or 1.3 -- here are the commands
I have used:
f = createImage(xcoord, ycoord, width, height)
setScaleImageToFrame(scaletoframe=1, proportional=1, name=f) #if
you want this
setRedraw(1) # maybe you need these at the end somewhere
redrawAll() # to show your images
